's effort. jon: what do they get out of it? is it iranian oil, is it tweaking the united states? >> reporter: it's both of those but they are acting in their own interest. as every nation should. we sometimes apologize for acting in our best interests. but russia and china view it as important to their agenda to block the sanctions in a meaningful way. jon: president obama said he would do whatever it takes to keep iran from gaining a nuclear weapon. will we? >> not under his administration, that is for sure. he's been saying this all openings are on the table for three and a half years and it just has no credibility at this point. the israelis don't believe him, the iranians don't believe him, the russians and the chinese don't believe him. that's why i believe ahmadinejad comes from a place of confidence because his overall stra teak eupblstrategic objectives can be well undertaken. the u.s. issued a statement this morning they weren't attending because it's yom kippur a hole who hwho he lee faith for the jewish faith. i think the u.s. delegation should have walked out on monday when mahm
, this is something the progressives in the united states have been trying to achieve since the progressive party bull moose party platform of 1912, 100 years, seven presidents tried, including some republicans, none succeeded until barack obama. and i asked the president, your advisors were against this, why did you do it? and he said, well i told nancy pelle city i may not get re-elected if i did this and so i repeated the question, why did you do it. >> if we didn't do it now it wouldn't have happened and to me that is the mark of a president who is showing leadership. you might not like it. >> rose: yes. >> but it is leadership. >> rose: i would say the following, john, i hear you and i know all of that, i have heard that conversation, i believe with a that even though he said i might not get re-elected he didn't for a moment believe that he would not get re-elected because his own confidence in himself was so strong. >> absolutely true. yes, he is extremely self-confident individual. >> even at this moment he understands intellectually the challenge and the risks and where the numbers are and al
. >> it was an unhappy time for him freur years ago. a moment of great triumph. >> important for the united states was elect barack obama. >> charlie:how would you define the relationship other than they need each other. >> i think they have genuine respect for each other. they talk more than you think. i think that was a process that built up after what was a contentious set of primaries. but i think from the moment that president obama got into office, president clinton really tried to do his best to support him when they reached out he always helped. >> charlie:that's not necessarily the story you hear, john. people say that the president has said -- former president he got more phone calls from george bush than he did from barack obama in the first year or 2. >> i think if you asked him that question today he would say they have a very serious, respectful relationship and they talk and they. >> charlie:but the point is what people around him say and people who know his thoughts said. >> a lot of people like to trade in that kind of gossip. but i know the reality. the reality is, you know, bara

, to be honest with you. we're going to get after this. it reverberates everywhere, across the united states. you know, we're willing to sacrifice a lot for this campaign, but we're not willing to be murdered for it. >> at a certain point as these attacks continue, the american people are going to say, we've had enough. why are we training these people if they're murdering us. >> well, that may be in fact. it may be the voice right now that we're hearing. the key point is for us to understand that the vast majority, the vast majority of the afghans, you've lived with them, you understand these people, they're with us in this. they understand right now the severity of this problem and the urgency of what's happening and there have been afghans who have been killed trying to save our forces when these attacks have been underway because that was the only reaction that they could have taken was to try to save us at the moment of that attack. >> reporter: training afghan troops like these afghan special forces soldiers is the center piece of general allen's mission. >> once they're there -- >> reporte
seems to be between the united states and israel not between israel and the united states. >> you think he should spend more time talking about foreign policy than about the economy and jobs? >> i think he should do both, particularly in light of the tragic death of ambassador stevens. >> good to have you here. thank you senator. >> thanks for mafg me on. >> we want to turn to some of the headlines from some of the newspapers. the "financial times" reports on the financial crisis in spain. today the spanish government announces budget cutbacks. on wednesday there were protests outside of the spanish parliament for a second day in a row. political turmoil is causing spanish stocks to nose dive. >>> britain's guardian reports on massive new demonstrations in greece. protesters had violent confrontations with police. there's new wage and pension cuts. the greek finance minister said the government has agreed on an austerity budget for next year. >> "usa today" finds income is growing much faster in republican leaning red states. personal income in those 23 states has risen 4.6% since the r
everywhere, across the united states. we're willing to sacrifice a lot for this campaign, but we're not willing to be murdered for it. >> reporter: certain points, if these attacks continue, the american people will say we've had enough. why are we training these people if they are murdering us? >> that may be, in fact. it may be the voice right now that we're hearing. the key point is for us to understand that the vast majority, vast majority of afghans, you have lived with them, you understand these people. they are with us in this. they understand right now the severity of this problem and the urgency of what's happening, and there have been afghan who's have been killed trying to save our forces when these attacks have been under way. because that was the only reaction that they could have taken, was to try to save us at the moment of that attack. >> training afghan troops like these afghan special forces soldiers is the centerpiece of general allen's mission. >> once they are there, we're going to move -- >> reporter: he has already had to success spespend training tw. shoul
that we provided. now you're right. we have a number of girls in schools in the united states and a number of -- everybody in this entire graduation class is in college. so, that's all exciting. to be able to do that, wherever you're ranked on anybody's list to me is a very good thing. >> oprah i have to say when i got the list and saw you were 50 out of 50 i was irritated. you didn't have a moment where you go okay fortune -- that didn't phase you. >> i wouldn't have known the magazine was out or i was on the list if you hadn't called me. no, it didn't phase me at all >> that's true. >> oprah you have been this list for 15 years. there are many powerful women out there leading businesses and what they are doing not just at work but the philanthropy they are doing on the side. talk about that in terms of giving back. the importance of giving back. >> well, you know, i believe that everybody's life, you know, there's a wonderful bible verse that i love, that i've grown up with that has been my mantra only what you do for christ will last and i think if you substitute the word christ for goo
